This popular design sold out of its first run in 2 months. The mic amp is the same design found in the MA05 combined with our take on the classic Pultec PEQ-1a passive equalizer. The MA•PEQ offers an all-discrete signal path using GKL’s 514 op-amps in its super-balanced line input, ultra low-noise mic amp and single-ended, high-power balanced line output. The rear panel provides both mic and line inputs for easy system integration.
GKL’s five-channel microphone preamplifier provides excellent CMR and exceptionally low noise both at high gain (up to 69dB) and low (where you use it most). Transparent, open, and musical without being overly clean or sterile, the MA05 exemplifies GKL’s sound. With an all-discrete, transformer-less signal path and digitally controllable settings via Ethernet, the MA05 is a powerful analogue tool with a modern, open and expressive character.
